The year is 1981. After being bitten by a werewolf, anchorwoman Karen White wanted to prove to the world that the shifter threat was real. She asked her coworker Chris Halloran to shoot her with a silver bullet as she transformed on live television. Now, weeks have passed and the world is still not convinced. Chris killed several werewolves in the events leading up to Karen's sacrifice, but he had been too late to stop the brutal slaying of his beloved girlfriend, Terry. Out on bail, Chris is battered by guilt, grief-stricken over the loss of Terry, and desperate to find some evidence that will exonerate him and honor the last wishes of Karen. On top of it all, recent findings suggest that some of the wolves he killed are not so dead after all. One of those is the savage and seductive Marsha Quist. Marsha is on a quest to locate an object called the Hand of Akkara, a relic that will not only avenge the slaying of her brothers at the hands of Chris Halloran, but may also reinstate a time-lost era… When werewolves ruled the world.
